Patrick - Week 4
Jacksonville, Illinois is a great location if you’re interested in research! We have 2 four-year colleges and a junior college in our city: MacMurray College, Illinois College, and Lincoln Land Community College. I’m finding that the key to researching is finding the right combination of key words . . . not too general but not too specific. Organizing the articles that you’ve decided are helpful is also important. 3M has Post-It Digital Notes that you can save to your desktop, but I’m thinking there’s a need for electronic Post-It Notes that allow you to add color-coded side notes to sentences or paragraphs as you’re reading them and also lets you add key words to your document to more quickly locate it later.
See my video blog that shows how I took action based on this week’s research!
